    "Shepherds, relentless in their vigilance."

    Originating from the East coast, the brain-child of a young man named Cody Cook, Hightower has been persistent in their efforts to find safe harbor for those who can't find it themselves. Many names and many faces have graced the callsign before, acting as shepherds to the weak and providing eyes to those with the strength to fight back.

    What is Hightower?
    "Hightower" is the callsign used by radio outposts scattered around the wasteland. Using salvaged equipment from emergency dispatch centers, airports, and National Weather Service stations, they act as an underground railroad, shepherding refugees, supplies, and information to safety. Often working with local caravans, friendly assets, and couriers (Hightower field agents), they've managed to scrape by and build themselves up after the loss of some of their prominent West coast agents.

    What do they do?
    Hightower acts an information highway; relaying things like Skynet activity, weather patterns, caravan routes, etc. They spread this information to friendly assets like Tech-Com, and even to other outposts in other cities. They use thermal sweeps and couriers to watch supply routes, and move refugees and supplies when they can, trying to ensure safe passage for those who can't protect themselves.

    Who are they?
    Hightower is composed of individuals of varying skill sets. Mostly those well-versed in the use and upkeep of radio equipment. Hightower has little to no capacity to wage war, instead focusing on reconnaissance to ensure safe, undetected passage. Hightower personnel are typically divided into four categories, Coordinator, Courier, Technician, and Provisioners. Non-HT personnel that assist in HT operations by providing shelter, supplies, or information are known as "Directors." The list of Directors is a closely guarded secret.


    Cody Cook - Coordinator
    Jocelyn Yuukon - Technician
    'Rey' - Courier

    Jin-Tae - Provisioner
    Harrison O'Donnell - Courier

    I appreciate seeing a PBG that isn't "Tech-Com but not Tech-Com" and taking much more of a utility, passive role on a server caked with anything but just that.

    Hope all goes well for you. Hopefully, your creativity will find it's way to ZRP when it starts up.

    I look forward to continuing my mercy killing of high tower members... I think I'm up to 3 now. Dark times indeed those where.

    In a more serious note, I liked this when It was done previously and so long as you can keep up with your radio it should pan out.
    Seen some other smaller gangs try to do this, but they just ended up rehashing information that was already said over communications.

    Radio1.

    With their members dead or having long since moved on, Hightower Bakersfield and her sister outposts make no further broadcasts. The flocks of refugees and caravans once guided under the watchful eyes of the shepherds are left to fend for themselves.

    Dark times loom ahead of us as we lose our ability to see beyond the horizon.
